The Kovels' Top Ten list is based on the results of hundreds of thousands of searches that took place on its website during February, 2014. Occupied Japan remains on top, proving Kovels.com is one of the web's most popular sources for Occupied Japan collectibles prices.

Shirley Temple is a newcomer to the Kovels Top Ten list, appearing at No. 4. Shirley Temple Black, the famous child actor turned wife, mother and U.S. diplomat, died on February 10 and news articles about her life created extra interest in her memorabilia. She was born in 1928 and made her first movie in 1932. She was wildly popular with movie goers during the 1930s and ’40s. The image of the little blond girl with curls, dimples and a big smile can be found on thousands of items—clothing, charm bracelets, pins, necklaces, books, paper dolls, movie posters, sheet music, dishes and of course, dolls—all of which are avidly collected. Items that are also labeled with her name are collector favorites.
